Correct Answer : NepaliSat-1
Explanation : Nepal's first satellite has been launched into space, which will soon start rotating around the Earths orbit to collect information about the country's topography and Earths magnetic field.

The NepaliSat-1 was launched from the Virginiabased station of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the US. The satellite, developed by two Nepalis – Abhas Maskey and Hariram Shrestha – at Japan's Kyushu Institute of Technology, bears the Nepal flag and the NAST logo. Similar satellites from Japan and Sri Lanka were also launched alongside NepaliSat-1. The satellite is equipped with a 5MP camera to capture Nepal's topography and a magnetometer to collect data related to the Earth's magnetic field. The images and data will be sent by satellite to the ground station at NAST, which is currently under construction.
